Day trip from Stonehaven. From Camasnacroise on narrow B8043. Solo. Ascended steeply at the north end of a wood to reach the southern slopes of Beinn na Cille. I reached its summit and continued N to reach the summit of Fuar Bheinn. Continued to Creach Bheinn. To the NE of the summit, at a col with a minor top, there are two stone dykes with three hut circles between them, said to be a relic of the Napoleonic Wars. I continued over Maol Odhar and Meall nan Each. I missed the last ferry, so had to drive round Loch Eil and then back to Stonehaven.pwbellarby24/05/1997
